This alliance will help us service our clients located down south with greater bandwidth and expertise. We have been working with the firm for long and formalizing the collaboration was a natural progression to reinforce our trust in each other. The firms have plans for joint expansion – both in terms of practice areas as well as geography, both domestic and international.”

For us, this alliance paves way to bolster presence in the national capital (New Delhi) and the business capital (Mumbai), where SNG & Partners is already a key market player. The partners at both firms are perfectly aligned to our collaborative vision of growth.”
